2018 Porsche GT3 Rumors and Review – The new Porsche 911 GT3 is preferable to you, and it will let you know when it gets tired by learning to be a machine made of clean anger. But it won’t bite unless you’re a colossal moron.
Porsche’s GT automobiles are always a little special. Off their genesis, the 2 2.7 liter RS of the 1970’s, to the electrifying 991.1 GT3 RS and the unjustly brilliant Cayman GT4, they’re uncompromising quickness machines made to get around circuits faster than the other guy with only a small amount fuss as is feasible. The latest iteration of 911 GT3 is of the same ilk, which means it’s a 911 plus. It is the new car from fifty years back with fewer playthings plus more grunt.
2018 Porsche GT3 Redesign
The GT3 “must be the most attractive 911”, but the 20mm-taller wing also produces more downforce and weighs about 20 percent less. The excess height means the wing is slicing through clean air instead of dusty air that’s recently been tweaked by the GT3’s other aero bits–such as the lateral air rotor blades in advance, which not only (supposedly) work but also help hide the mustache tips of the DRLs, my least favorite styling cue on the 991. Also of note are greater dual air intakes below the wing. The underbody is even and feeds air to an improved diffuser.
2018 Porsche GT3 Engine
Another racy example: Below the carbon-fiber hinges rests the GT3’s new center, and it’s the contrary of your gimmick. It’s a 4.0-liter effortlessly aspirated flat-six that’s good for 500 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque, up from 475 hp and 324 lb-ft of twist from the prior 3.8-liter engine, and it still spins to 9,000 rpm. In addition, the top 4.0-liter is new, not merely an embiggened version of the 3.8-liter flat-six found in previous Porsche GTs.
2018 Porsche GT3 Price
The 2018 GT3 begins at $144,650 (not including its gas-guzzler taxes), simply a few thousand dollars more than the 2015 model and completely $33,600 less than the prior GT3 RS with which it stocks its engine and chassis technologies. It is almost $40,000 cheaper than the ultrarare 911 R’s MSRP–to say nothing at all of the sky-high prices those have commanded.
